A Natural Solution That Doesn’t Require Taking Hormones
Tired of wondering what is going on with your hormones?
Want to look younger and feel better?
Getting your hormones healthy requires a lot more than swallowing a pill, in fact taking certain hormone replacements have been shown to do more harm than good, even if they are bio-identical. Our goal is to balance hormones by fixing the underlying problems that exist in the organs and glands. Rather than giving the body a hormone why not get the body to produce it’s own?
Determining the underlying cause of your imbalances is the key. The first step in the evaluation is to take an in-depth questionnaire that in most cases is more accurate than a blood test. Once this is complete then we also do a Chinese medical diagnosis that allows us to get more objective data to find out what hormonal imbalances are causing your symptoms.
In some cases hormonal testing is necessary. Most conventional medical doctors overlook the importance of adrenal health in hormone syndromes when in fact adrenal glands may be the single most important cause of hormone imbalances. If you are like most people then your fast-paced life places an enormous burden on your adrenal glands and results in elevated levels of cortisol. Cortisol has a variety of functions within your body, and when imbalanced can lead to numerous health problems including weight gain around the middle section, immune suppression, and fatigue. Cortisol can also be affected by mental stress as well as what you eat in your daily diet.
Cortisol also assists in healing injuries and is the major anti-inflammatory hormone in the body, this is why stress elevates cortisol. The body is ready to “fight or flee” and may need some reparative hormones for the process. If you have restless sleep or have a hard time drifting off at night and waking up in the morning, you may be interested to see where your cortisol levels currently rank. By understanding what symptoms you are experiencing, and discovering your cortisol numbers, our program can offer insight that may lead to a healthier, more fulfilling life.
We will take a look at 7 major categories of hormonal imbalances considering the relationship of cortisol, estrogen, thyroid hormones, adrenal function, and testosterone. Once these hormonal imbalances are evaluated we then use custom formulated herbs from traditional Chinese medicine, specific dietary guidelines, and exercises to get you looking and feeling your best.
